Rescue workers from the Polish Centre for International Aid (PCPM) will support doctors in Kyrgyzstan in the fight against coronavirus, announced the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Sunday.

"Our doctors and rescue workers are ready to help, their commitment confirms the importance of cooperation between Poland and Kyrgyzstan," added the ministry in a post on Twitter.

The PCPM Medical Rescue Team has already given support, during the coronavirus pandemic, to the mission of Polish doctors to Italy. They helped in, among other places, a field hospital in Brescia.

The Polish Centre for International Aid is a humanitarian organisation that assists people in need around the world, in particular victims of armed conflicts and natural disasters. The organization was founded in 2006.
